VICTORIA UNIVERSITY

HISTORY

Victoria University Uganda was established in 2011 by Edulink Holdings Limited, a private company that invests internationally in tertiary institutions of higher education. From 2011 until late 2012, the university was affiliated with the University of Buckingham (UB), in the United Kingdom, which awarded the majority of degrees offered at Victoria. However, VUU has a number of courses that it developed, teaches and examines independent of UB. The degree certificates of the VUU courses are awarded by Victoria University. The university was accredited by the National Council of Higher Education in October 2010. In 2012, the affiliation with University of Buckingham was terminated.

In September 2013, the institution was purchased, for an undisclosed sum of money, by Sudhir Ruparelia, ranked the wealthiest individual in East Africa, by Forbes Magazine in 2012. The university became a member of the Ruparelia Group. Its campus relocated to Eagen Mansions, at 1-13 Jinja Road, in Kampala’s central business district, which was renamed Victoria Towers.

As one of Uganda’s newest universities, Victoria University stands out as a pivot of academic excellence, offering a fresh and intellectually thriving environment that nurtures critical and progressive thinkers and pushes pedagogical boundaries.

The University is committed to the advancement of higher education in the country and the East African region by establishing exemplary, specialised and employment-oriented education.

Our backbone is solid, as we are backed by the Ruparelia Group which is notable in the education sector in Uganda and has under its portfolio the renowned Kampala International School Uganda and Kampala Parents’ School.
